15XX Change Log

The initial concepts for 15XX took shape in the spring of 2020, right as the COVID-19 pandemic shut the world down. The rules have moved into closed playtesting as of January 2021.

Playtest 03

December 2020-January 2021: Revised movement / grid rules with (hopefully) more refined focus on area control and denial. The goal is leveraging the small 2’x3′ board size and grid. Group (i.e. units/troops) types much more refined with clear roles. Testing questions include movement into occupied zones and introduction of new Group types.


Playtest 02

Summer 2020: Fleshed out rules and gameplay loop withone (6ft distanced!) playtest game and one gameplay walkthrough with WIP minis. Solo gameplay tests. Campaign/progression concepts introduced.


Playtest 01

Spring 2020: Proof of concept with placeholder troop types and narrative mechanics to gauge interest with immediate personal friends. Initial miniature purchases to proof of concept test.
